I'm not going to stop pumping anytime soon though. I'm going to do the paperwork so I can become a donor for the milkbank that supplies the NICU at the hospital I gave birth to both of my kiddos at. I want my milk to go to NICU babies too.
A few months ago I donated my freezer stash of over 1,000 oz to the milk bank. When the lady who came to pick it up was walking out the door she said, "Thank you so much! You are saving little lives today!" It made me feel like all my milk was going some place that could help the neediest babies. And she said that they were running low on milk and had only enough to get by each day. She also let me know that just a 1/4 of an ounce can be a meal for a super tiny baby, so every bit is needed!
